Learning what it takes to create and grow an open source project is trapped in the brains of many people. Many people want to know what makes a project tick, how it actually gets things done. This session is going to open the brain of one person who will channel all the experience he has, all that he has learned in open source communities and working for Red Hat, in to taking the audience through how to start and sustain an open source project. Hands on. If we're going to be in a room together, we might as well get some work done toward what interests you.
